I am trying to put the knob on a flip over cartridge and the screw is so small it is hard to hold it to insert in the hole of the knob and in to the shaft of the cartridge how do you hold the screw thanks.

magnetize the screwdriver by running along the back of the speaker.

My father taught me this one...not pretty..but it generally works. Put a good amount of saliva (yes, spit, saliva, etc.) on your screwdriver and the screw and join them up....You'd be surprised how it can hold small stuff like you're working with in place...and evaporates when you're done.

You can rub the head of the screw on a bar of soap so that the slot fills up. Then stick it on the screwdriver. It doesn't evaporate when you are done.

Thanks every one we finally got it with the help of a friend. I had to hold the cartridge from moving and pull it forward and we got it by magnetizing a screw driver.

I thought that is what the wax on old capacitors was for :)

I'm also a fan of using silly putty to hold screws or bolts to the driver to keep them from falling out. I used the technique last when installing the very small (and short) push-button switch screws on the inside of my Zenith 8S359 8)
